Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies are a favourite among both children and adults. Who can forget Dennis the Menace standing on a stool and grabbing one from the cookie jar! A cookie not only makes a wonderful snack, it’s a comfort food also. The recipe I have used here is from The Cookie Cookbook, which was published in the 70s. I have not used walnuts, which the recipe suggested, because my son doesn’t like nuts, but the extra cup of chocolate chips added instead to the mix makes it absolutely scrumptious. I have also increased the brown sugar to enhance the flavour.
